20140912_153314I love to share the wonderful things going on in the 5th grade hall at DES! This week, Mrs. Smith conducted a lesson about beginning with the end in mind. This is an important leadership skill. You are never too young to start planning your future. She had students create silhouettes filled with their “End in Mind.” Great job 5th grade!

In reading we will have a test on Tuesday that covers Problem / Solution and Idioms. The pages in your Practice Book for Unit 1 Lesson 2 (pg. 13, 14, 15 & 17) are a great review for your test!

Wednesday we will begin Unit 1 Lesson 3. The focus for Lesson 3 will be Cause/Effect & Homographs. I have designed a Learning Log to give students that accompanies lesson 3. Students will be responsible for keeping up with this learning log. The material in the learning log (along with their Practice Book) will help them prepare for testing. This Learning Log will be turned  in on the morning of their lesson 3 test for a GRADE.
